Evidently I do not know everything, just most things!

However, I want to ask you about horseradish. Is it a vegetable, or maybe just a condiment? Perhaps it is not really fit to eat at all but they are still harvesting horseradish from the family farm that was planted by my great-grandmother!

Great quiz, btw!
